Use FactoryGirl steps in Cucumber features

I came across something VERY useful recently: factory_girl‘s built in cucumber steps. That’s right, factory_girl comes with some built in cucumber steps that can be used in your cucumber features.

Just add the following to your cucumber env.rb file:

require "factory_girl/step_definitions"

Then, assuming you have the actual factory definitions in the first place, you can use all kinds of loveliness, including the use of associations!
